Eluga Power

If you had your eye on the Eluga Power, Panasonic's gigantic ICS-powered beast, it seems you may have to wait just a little big longer. According to British online retailer Clove Technology, the Eluga Power's UK launch has slipped into the third quarter of 2012 -- a change from the previously-announced Q2 launch window.

As we saw when we went hands-on with the Eluga Power at MWC, it's a thin, light 5-inch device with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU. When we saw it back in February, the Power was running vanilla Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, though it's possible the the finished product will feature some kind of UI customization. Other notables include a 720p screen based upon Panasonic's own LCD tech, IP57 water resistance, and an 8MP rear camera.

Looks like a beast. No US availability I'm guessing.

I know it isn't a finished product, but every time I see those tiny icons on such a big screen I chuckle.

I'd like a 5-5.5" phone from not samsung (picky I know).. glad to see this one kind of exists

This is just a cool phone Dual-core or not. Like the flat slate design, the 5", and the fact that it can handle depth submersion in stock form.

I knew there'd be someone wishing the screen were bigger before I checked the comments, what the hell is wrong with you people?

Any larger and you'll be able to attach wheels and skateboard it to work.

This smartphone looked great. I wish it would've released in the US in July. I guess i will have to buy the Samsung Galaxy S3 or, the LG Optimus 4X HD.
